[FAQ] Update madsonic with a war package on debian linux

Unread postby Madevil » 10 Dec 2012, 18:38

Sometimes, madsonic updates are only provided in .exe and .war packages.
On ubuntu/debian, with a war package, you can easy update your madsonic.
(This works if you previously installed a .deb version of madsonic, I'm not sure it will work if you come from subsonic)

Unzip the files in the /usr/share/subsonic folder, then in the same folder do a
Code: Select all
chmod +x *

If you don't, subsonic won't be able to start.

In summary (you have to be in root):

Code: Select all
service subsonic stop
cd /usr/share/subsonic
wget put_the_link_to_the_file -O the_name_you_want_to_give_it.zip
unzip the_name_you_want_to_give_it.zip
chmod +x *
service subsonic start

All builds don't have deb, ok, but the installation with a war package is quite as easy !
